Frost’s Paintbrush

Frost141116A

The last few days of frost have pretty much taken care of the outdoor vegetable beds. Frost is nature’s blanket, telling the plants that it’s time to go to sleep. Each day, the leaves are more curled and closer to the ground. Once the frost is gone, many will spring back up, only to lie down again when frost returns. Many will refuse to sleep until they are covered with thick snow. Some years it happens, some years it doesn’t.
